Lena, an experienced hospice nurse, arrives in Palm Springs to care for Michele Vogel, a businesswoman dying of cancer.
Assisted by Michele’s gay house manager Terry, her detached ex-pilot husband William, and her pet therapy dog Angel, Lena helps the family overcome current and past trauma and move on.
A caring and compassionate dramatic comedy about love, death, and moving on, HEARTWORK realistically depicts the emotional struggles and issues facing hospice patients dealing with a broken United States medical system in crisis.
